The UFC announced today that “The Ultimate Fighter 7” champ Amir Sadollah will be forced out of his UFC 91 matchup against Nick Catone due to a leg infection. Because the event will be taking place this Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, they will be unable to find a replacement for Sadollah.

One man’s misfortune tends to open the door for another, and in this case Dustin Hazelett and Tamdan McCrory will be benefiting from Sadollah’s withdrawl. Their matchup has been promoted to the televised part of the Pay-Per-View broadcast.

Here is how UFC 91 now shakes out:

Preliminary Bouts:

Ryan Thomas vs. Matt Brown
Jorge Gurgel vs. Aaron Riley
Mark Bocek vs. Alvin Robinson
Jeremy Stephens vs. Rafael dos Anjos

Main Bouts:

Tamdan McCrory vs. Dustin Hazelett
Damian Maia vs. Nate Quarry
Joe Stevenson vs. Kenny Florian
Josh Hendricks vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture (UFC Heavyweight Champion)
